2FA won’t activate, but says it did

I’ve done a couple of clean installs of Wordfence and I still cannot activate 2FA for my admin account. I get no errors in the process and when I type in the authenticator code, it says it’s active. However, I go back to the Users page and it still says Inactive and there is no prompt at login to enter a code. I do get errors on the diagnostics page, but I’ve done clean installs with removing all data and tables so it can rebuild everything. I have just submitted the diagnostics report to wftest@wordfence.com.
